Upcoming changes to the clockevent core will make it adjusting a clockevent
device's mult/shift pair in order to compensate for NTP corrections made
by the timekeeping core.

For certain devices this behaviour is unwanted. Introduce the
CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST flag that, when being set, will cause a clockevent
device to be excluded from those adjustments.
